A man dressed as a woman allegedly stabbed a SEPTA trolley driver after refusing to pay his fare early this morning in Collingdale, Delaware County.
Police say they were called 12:11 a.m. to Woodlawn and MacDade in response to reports of a stabbing. Arriving officers found the trolley driver standing outside, hunched over, and bleeding from the face.
The driver told police that the man, who normally dresses as a woman, always gets off in Sharon Hill without paying.
The driver apparently had enough and told the man he had to pay.
The suspect, later identified as Christopher Vinson, 29, of the 1200 block of Calcon Drive, Upper Darby, yelled back and still refused to pay. Vinson then allegedly stabbed or slashed the operator in the face with a knife, police said.
